WWW.INTERNATIONALCEMENTSEMINAR.COM The Return of the Premier Conference and Exhibition for Cement Equipment and Technology It's back! Relaunched by SEMCO Publishing, the publishers of Rock Products, Concrete Products, Cement Americas and the North American Cement Directory, the International Cement Seminar— which previously ran for more than 35 years—returns to bring focus to the equipment and technol- ogy that is driving productivity and profitability. As the market for cement production continues to grow and evolve, the long-requested return of the International Cement Seminar will help industry professionals strategically plan for the future. DON'T MISS THE OPTIONAL ARGOS ATLANTA PLANT TOUR! SPACE IS VERY LIMITED. Located in the heart of Atlanta, along the Chattahoochee River, the Argos Atlanta Cement Plant was built in 1962 with its first production following in 1963 with one kiln and one mill. After five years, a second kiln and mill were added and would produce for the Atlanta plant for the next 38 years. In 2006, kiln operations ceased as a result of environmental emissions. Despite no lon- ger producing clinker, the Atlanta cement plant is a unique asset within the Argos U.S. operations, since it hosts the company's color lab and color blending operation, as well as its grinding capabilities. In addition, the plant has the logistical capability to receive materials and ship to Argos' customers by rail or truck. The plant employs 40 active, non-union employees with an average of more than 22 years of service who are highly dedicated to supporting Argos' values of safety, community engagement, and environmental responsibility. The plant employees have more than 3,500* days since the last lost-time incident, frequently participate in activities supporting their local communities, and work to maintain the plant's certification under the Wildlife Hab- itat Council's Wildlife at Work Program. *as of April 2019 CEMENT TECHNOLOGY & TRANSFORMATION 2019 NOVEMBER 19-21, 2019 | COBB GALLERIA CENTRE | ATLANTA, GA USA
